Child Passenger Safety Program

Motor vehicle occupant injuries are among the top five causes of both death and hospitalization among children under age 16. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that, child restraints are 71% effective in reducing fatality among infants and 54% effective among children aged one to four in passenger cars.

Ventura County Public Health provides education and training to the community on child passenger safety through education campaigns, workshops, and hands on car seat education.
